Holy Week At Home

Liturgy Brisbane has kindly shared to different parishes, including St Kevin’s Eastwood, a means for all families to reflect on Holy Week at home. They have created this resource to suit the current circumstances that most families are experiencing in light of the COVID 19 pandemic.

The Joy from your Sharing by Fr Fabius

Dear Fr Martin and parishioners,
Please, accept my greeting and appreciation that emanates from your care and joy to share with us. As we read in Acts 20:35 – “there is more joy in giving than receiving”, I pray that you experience this joy more than us who benefited.

100 Years of Catholic Worship 1919-2019

It’s definitely a significant milestone for any organisation to celebrate 100 years of continuous service to any community.
The first liturgical service officially celebrated at Eastwood in the original Church was a Mass. This building is now the school library. It served as the Parish Church for 75 years!

A Message of Thanks from Fr Fabius

Dear Fr. Martin and parishioners,
Thank you so much for your generous contributions to Pere Achte Primary School. I am so grateful to God that He created you for a purpose: to love God and your fellow human beings. The story of the “Good Samaritan” we read in the Bible is not always understood even by us who struggle to expound God’s Word. I’ve heard from Marissa who communicated to me with lots of surprising excitement and joy.
